“Intentional Parenting: 10 Ways to Be an Exceptional Parent in a Quick Fix World”
Sundays, Jan. 20 - Mar. 31 | 9:00 AM | Sequoia Room
No matter how good their intentions, all parents at times resort to quick-fix parenting: things we do to stop a kid's negative or annoying behavior. Quick-fix parenting may temporarily ease a parent's stress level, but it does little to positively impact a child's future. Quick-fix parenting is a terrible long-term strategy for parenting. Intentional parenting is the opposite of quick-fix parenting. Intentional parenting is a way to raise children to become healthy, independent young adults. It's based on solid principles which, applied over time, actually result in less-stressed parents and happier, better- adjusted, and more successful kids. Intentional parenting means you've got more than good intentions; you've got a plan. (And it's always better to have a plan for dealing with the stuff that inevitably crops up between parents and their kids than it is to wing it.) For more information, contact Pastor Johnson or 408-240-7920.
Sundays, March 3 - March 31 | 10:45 am | Chapel

Join our Financial Peace University class, and you’ll learn how to beat debt and make a plan for the future, God’s way. . . together!

This class covers all things financial and whether you have been in the class previously (an alumni) or are new to FPU, you won’t want to miss this updated material from the Ramsey organization. This class is 9 weeks and covers topics from debt and credit card management through planning for your kids’ college and retirement. FPU Alumni are free but you might want to order a new workbook. The cost for the FPU kits is $50 (the Friends of Christ Foundation will pay the other half) Not sure if this class is for you? Ask any of the hundreds at CCCM that have gone through the class…don’t miss this opportunity. Register online or contact Roberta Walker or 408-240-7933.
